Merritt Health and Wellness is a collaborative wellness clinic that capitalizes on the expertise of our provider’s professional training, education and discipline to support you in your journey toward metabolic health.  We believe coordinating care between our providers and your primary care physician (and/or specialist) is paramount to achieving your health and wellness goals.

We have partnered with patients who no longer need medical intervention for:

– Type II Diabetes   – Prediabetes   – Insulin resistance   – Kidney failure   – High blood pressure   – High cholesterol   – Thyroid Issues  – Weight loss

– Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)   – Emotional Eating   – Low Testosterone   – Depression, Anxiety, other mood disorders   – Low back pain   – Knee and joint pain

According to the Center for Disease Control, 2/3rds of the United States adult population are considered overweight (BMI>25). (CDC, NHANES 2003-6/2007/8)

In 2030 the obesity rate is expected to hit 50%.

From 1960 to 2006, national obesity rates rose from 13.4 to 35.1 percent in those ages 20 – 74 years. (CDC, 2008)

 Our team of providers with over a decade of experience in health and wellness will walk you through evidence-based treatment options that address the biological, physical, and behavioral reasons for your obesity.
